The life of a private detective undergoes a dramatic change when he takes up a case that is deeply personal and highly complex.
Set in the year 1992 against the backdrop of the financial reform policy that spiralled the Indian middle class into a frenzy of consumerism, Pune 52 is a heartbreaking love story blended with an edge of the seat thriller, with femme fatales, corrupt officialdom, and twists lurking around every corner. This crackling tale is a standard bearer showcasing the continuing resurgence of Marathi cinema.
